Sometimes it seems like major league baseball is a war. Players are injured, and someone else is shuffled ahead to take their place at the front line. We continue to be inundated on a daily bases with a flood of never ending injuries. Today we'll discuss some of the injuries that are hot topics over the last 24 hours. We'll also break down how the Brewers plan to handle the rotation spot opened up when Marco Estrada was placed on the DL. We'll then move on to note a few hot starters that relatively few are talking about and break down a couple of hot starters that maybe too many people are talking about.
What an outstanding day for baseball on Tuesday! Normally, when I go through the games (the ones I haven’t watched first-hand, that is), the recaps, and the stat sheets, there are usually a handful of performances that stand out as a cut above the rest. Whether it’s a complete-game shutout or a two or three-home run performance, these events stand out and deserve to be recognized. But after everything that went down on Tuesday, that “handful of performances” just became a wheelbarrow-full. I can’t imagine that I was the only fantasy owner sitting there, eyes the size of saucers, mouth agape, a tiny stream of drool coming down from the corner of my mouth, staring at my live scoring page like a little kid staring at that new bike under the Christmas tree. The levels of performances given were outstanding. So much so, that I’m forced to forego the usual format, call them all fantasy beasts and just serve you up the highlights.
“Wait, wait, wait….whaaaat? What’s today? Easter? Really? Well did they know it was the first weekend of baseball when they made it Easter? Oh, really? It was Easter before it was baseball? Hmmm. Yeah, I don’t know about that, but ok, I guess.”
I'm having one of those days. You know, where you wake up feeling a little foggy. I didn't stay out last night boozing, that will be tonight, so I can't really explain my malaise. Therefore, I'm only going to take partial responsibility for what you're about to read. If you find it useful then it was all me. If you find it laughable, well, then my body was possessed by the spirit of some whacky baseball analyst. I'll discuss the value of Jose Bautista, Matt Garza and the recently signed Ryan Madson in my weekly piece.
Happy Labor Day everyone, and as we say goodbye to summer, it is important to remember not to say goodbye to your fantasy baseball team as we roll through the last month of the season. Tonight we have a couple of returning players, one young one that I have all the hopes in the world for to finish the year strongly, the other is an older player that I gave up on long ago and took a lot of grief over my rankings of him before the season started. We have news on a couple of the more exciting young players in the majors, as well as an injury not for the Red Sox. But there is so much more than that as we come into the home stretch of the season so please don't miss Rounding The Bases.
We are just two days away from the All-Star Break, but of course these games are still important as all of the news keeps rolling in. One of the top prospects left in the minors is coming to the majors, but his manager has already said that his stay won't be long. Another Red Sox pitcher goes down, which another AL pitcher takes one on the chin. One of my big man crushes is living up to my love, even if he didn't make the All-Star Break. A first round fantasy pick is finally waking up, while a guy we took a few rounds later is still disappointing. My pitching streamer from the other night didn't get the win, but it appears I am back on track as he still pitched really well. There will only be one more article before the Break so enjoy tonight's Rounding The Bases.
It is another wonderful Monday in fantasy baseball as we talk about some hot hitting first baseman, an outfielder I have no faith in, as well as some starting pitchers who are doing well. I tell you two players that are doing well that I have no faith in, as well as two players that aren't doing well that I am sure are going to turn it around.

Happy Saturday to you all as another weekend of fantasy baseball is upon us. Tonight we have some injury news on some of the biggest names in the game, as well as a first round fantasy pick riding the pine on Saturday. There is talk of some pitching in Boston and in the Bronx, as well as speculating on how long this hot streak in Cleveland will last. Is it all for real? Speaking of for real, what about this guy in Kansas City that is suddenly lighting it up right when we all gave up hope on him?

We have our first change in closers of the 2011 season as well as some injuries that continue to pile up and some good news on that front. We have a young player being moved to the leadoff role for his team, as we also have a slugger that will miss this week's games. There is a young catcher who gets some time, as well as some young pitchers who are already making an impact, as well as a veteran who came out of the gate slowly.
